Pretty sure molasses moves faster than I seem to be moving this morning.  After a late night playing volleyball I slept in.

And I’ve done nothing but watch TV this morning.  First step will be the grocery store if I can get that far.  I should probably stop at the bank too.  And then I need to make Brinkley food.  And clean.  And do laundry. 

It’s easier just to sit here and watch television though.


This is what happens when I go to the library to drop off 2 books and check out 2 more.  The 2 on the right are my library books.  The 5 others I bought at the Friends of the Library store for $8.

When I walked home from the library I needed a bag.  I wasn’t planning on that but it made me happy.  Nothing better than new books to read!!!

You remember when I used to post blogs somewhat frequently?  Yeah, me too.  

Random updates are best in bullet form.  

  • I still have zucchini grime all over my hands.  It looks like I have some freakish alien skin disease as the color has turned to a somewhat glowing green.  It’s all ok though because I have a freezer full of shredded zucchini.  I also have a pints and pints of salsa, pizza sauce, pasta sauce, carrots, and mashed potatoes.  I even have a few bags of chopped kale in the freezer.  We seriously have enough salsa for about 10 families.  Anywho, couldn’t have done any of it without my mom’s help.  We worked our way through everything for two full days.  That’s a lot of washing, peeling, blanching, cutting, etc.   Thanks, Mom!!!
  • I just finished up a round of senior picture work for my cousin (or second cousin).  Between the wedding pics and a round of senior pics, I’ve spend quite a bit of time on the computer here and there.  My evenings have either been veggies or pictures it feels like.  I got a little off-track with my Couch to 5k last week but I think I’ve found my groove again.  It’s a little easier getting myself out the door knowing that I get walk breaks.  That should tell you just how lazy and out of shape I’ve become this summer.  I had such high hopes for the summer but it sure slipped away without much activity on my part.
  • I’ve got some fall decorating done.  If I could get some piles picked up and some cleaning done, I could probably do a little bit more.  It’s about time for me to start cleaning out some of my flower pots that have seen better days.  The mums are starting to bloom and I could add a few new mums to front step as decor for a few weeks before planting them.  Tulips and mums – that’s all I really need in my floral landscape.
  • I’m still speechless that A&E cancelled Longmire.  I think it’s by far one of the dumbest decision ever by a television network.  It was the network’s highest rated scripted show.  I was pissed.  Now I’m just in some odd state of mourning and disbelief.  It almost seems like there is no point in even watching a specific series anymore because most are so short lived or the writing goes so far off track that the plots are unbelievable (Scandal anyone?).  I’ll just stick to watching The West Wing, Gilmore Girls, and Friends on repeat.

Ok, I’m off to run some errands.  Brinkley needs his nails clipped and a haircut.


I’m slowly making progress on running.  Although I’m happy to see a sub 10 minute pace per mile.  That even includes stopping during the run segments for a stray dog, a car backing up, and a stray dog.  I hope that pace stays with me as the run segments get longer. 

I’m going to start looking for a spring half marathon or something to do as a run/walk.  I want to see how it treats me for a longer distance.



I’m so bleepin’ excited to be on vacation and away from work.  The past two weeks have been absolutely crazy at work.  I’ve barely had time to pee and grab a few bites to eat each day.

It begins with a simple night at home.  Brent and I are undecided as to what to eat so that’s the first order of business, I suppose.  His vote is for ice cream. 


My weekend was pretty uneventful.  I watched a lot of Frazier on Netflix and starting packing some things up for our trip to Idaho.

I got some great clearance deals on shorts and tank tops at Penny’s and Kohl’s. 

If this work week is as crazy busy as last week, it will be vacation time in the blink of an eye.
